I just love this little cabinet. It sits near my bathroom and holds all of my very important girl stuff like lotions and potions. It has morphed over the years. I repaint it about every year, practically as often as I put new pillows on our bed.

Now that I have discovered Wood Icing™ products I am loving the fact that I can add texture and depth to even a small project to get a new look. Plus it’s water based so clean up is a breeze.

Though this piece is fun – with its gold shiny metallic and flat Paris Grey Chalk Paint® stripes, it clearly could use something. Some dimension on the stencil seems a quick and easy project.

STEP ONE  Remove any hardware. Lightly mist the stencil on the back side (to help keep the Textura Paste from bleeding underneath). Place it in position and tape it down.

STEP TWO  Using the Off Set Knife, “butter” some Textura Paste over the stencil design. Let dry. This is a water-based product so it dries in about 15 minutes. Repeat and let dry.

STEP THREE  Pull up an edge of the stencil and decide if you want to sand the design a bit. If you do, just wipe off and re-tape the stencil in place. Dip the tips of your stencil brush in the stencil creme and stencil using a swirling motion. I began by layering on colors of blue, then settled on Patina Green as my top layer. Let dry completely and replace your hardware.

Clean the stencil as soon as you finish with soap and water and a green scrubby pad.

Done! What do you think? I love the added pop of texture and color to pull in the colors around the room including the bedding and ottoman. Give this easy project a try. It takes so little product and it’s great to work on while you are doing other tasks around the house!
